Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I CALL THIS earth to witness -
90:2 And you are free to live upon it, -
90:3 And the parent and the offspring
90:4 That We created man in toil and trouble
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him
90:6 He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth."
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him
90:8 Did We not give him two eyes
90:9 One tongue, and two lips
90:10 And showed him two highways (of good and evil)
90:11 But he could not scale the steep ascent
90:12 How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -
90:13 To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery)
90:14 Or to feed in times of famin
90:15 The orphan near in relationship
90:16 Or the poor in distress
90:17 And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind
90:18 They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed)
90:19 But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand
90:20 The Fire will vault them over
